In 1956 Paolo Soleri and his wife Colly settled in Paradise Valley where, in 1965, they established the Cosanti Foundation. Paolo had received his doctorate with top honors from the Polytechnic school in Turin, Italy and had spent some 18 months in Scottsdale as a student under Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesen West.

The Cosanti Foundation allows visitors to explore the history of Soleri's work in Arizona and around the world. Storyboards, photographs and multimedia explain the progress of arcology from theory to practice, as well as the phenomenon of the famous Soleri windbells.

An entrance fee may be required.
